I'm Working With Tom's of Maine in Their Goodness Circle! Groovy Green Livin

As many of you know, last year I was invited to work with Tom’s of Maine as a brand ambassador in their Goodness Circle. It was a great partnership and an incredible experience.

I have some exciting news to share for this year~ Once again, I’ll be partnering  with Tom’s of Maine as a member of their Goodness Circle! My family’s been using Tom’s of Maine for many years so this partnership...

How to Make the Switch to Clean Energy With MyDomino (Giveaway: Nest Programmable Thermostat!)

How to Make the Switch to Clean Energy & Nest Giveaway! Groovy Green Livin

 This is a sponsored post created in collaboration with MyDomino. I did receive compensation. All opinions are my own. When you hear the phrase “clean energy” what do you think?  Clean energy is heat and electricity produced from renewable resources such as solar, wind and water. This form of energy generates little or no pollution or emissions when used. When our electricity comes from clean energy sources we avoid the carbon dioxide emissions that would have come from burning fossil fuels like coal, oil, or natural gas. What a simple way to help prevent climate change! Over the past few years we’ve been making...

Is BPA In Your Food Cans? New Report Says Yes!

Is BPA In Your Food Cans? New Report Says Yes!

There’s some bad news for those of us who thought BPA was a thing of the past. A new report released today tested nearly 200 food can linings for the toxic chemical, Bisphenol A (BPA) and found that two out of three cans tested have the chemical in the lining. The report took a look at cans of vegetables, fruits, soups, broth, gravy, milks and beans from Campbell’s, Del Monte, General Mills, Kroger, Albertsons and more. BPA is an endocrine-disrupting chemical that negatively impacts our hormonal systems. It can also contribute to breast and prostate cancer, infertility, type-2 diabetes, obesity, asthma and attention deficit...

Big Changes in GMO Labeling! What You Need to Know

Big Changes in GMO Labeling! What You Need to Know Groovy Green Livin

Many of us want GMO labeling and it’s finally happening! For years we’ve been fighting for something that seems so simple. We want to know what’s in our food. We’ve been asking for GMO labeling and transparency and after years of effort food industry giants now have no choice but to comply. A few weeks ago the Senate failed to pass a bill that would prevent states from requiring GMO labeling. This was a huge victory for consumers and a disappointment for many organizations who have spent hundreds of millions of dollars to prevent  labeling. This defeat also gave a green light to the...

Grassfed Yogurt: What Are The Health Benefits?

Grassfed Yogurt Health Benefits Groovy Green Livin

Have you noticed that there seem to be more and more products with a “grassfed” label?  And it’s not just beef boasting the label, dairy products from milk to yogurt are also prominently displaying a “100% grassfed” label. Eager to learn more about this new addition to our labeling system, I had a chance to hear from Tim Joseph, the founder of Maple Hill Creamry and the supplier of the milk for all of Stonyfield’s “100% Grassfed” products.  Stonyfield just launched their 100% Grassfed yogurt in four delicious flavors (vanilla, plain, blueberry and strawberry). I know because I had a chance to sample each....

Change the Way You Live and Eat! Book Review and Recipe: Eating Clean By Amie Valpone

Change the Way You Live and Eat! Book Review and Recipe: Eating Clean Groovy Green Livin

When a friend does amazing work I always like to share. Amie Valpone, the Editor-in-Chief of The Healthy Apple, just launched a new “cook book”, Eating Clean: The 21-Day Plan to Detox, Fight Inflammation, and Reset Your Body. Although her book contains over 200 recipes, it is really so much more than a traditional cookbook. I’ve been trying to remember when I met Amie for the first time. I think it was at a blogging conference in New York City in 2012. We were both at a breakfast sponsored by Stonyfield and happened to be sitting together. I was immediately drawn to Amie’s charm...
